In honor of Bastille Day, we're taking a look at some of our favorite hotels in Paris. (If you happen to be celebrating the French National Holiday in Washington D.C., Zagat has some great suggestions- like French wines at BLT Steak and crêpes and live music at Willard InterContinental's Café du Parc.) Woody Allen's latest film may have you jonesing for a trip to the City of Light, and the summer is a grand time to do it. There's jazz in the park, outdoor movie screenings, and the 10th edition of Paris Plages means sun-bathing on a splendid manmade beach on the Seine (complete with ice cream stands and sprinklers).
The Mandarin Oriental just opened on the Rue Saint-Honoré and it's causing quite the stir for its gorgeous spa and food by uber chef Thierry Marx. Le Royal Monceau- a glorious palace designed by Philippe Starck- is *the* place for cocktails and pastries. Meanwhile Mon Hotel-- a designer boutique hotel not far from the Champs-Élysées-- is offering a special summer deal. And the Hilton Arc de Triomphe has put together a three-night break that includes a Paris Museum pass, a Champagne cruise on the Seine, a specially prepared picnic to enjoy by an iconic landmark, and city tour in a vintage style Citreon 2CV car.
